At the April 17 Providence Geeks, Thorne Sparkman from Slater Technology Fund will be presenting a talk titled It’s All Geek to Me: Evaluating Tech Through the Eyes of the Customer. Thorne is the managing director of the Slater Technology Fund, where he focuses on the earliest stage of company creation, often working with university-based teams commercializing research.
The Slater Technology Fund is an evergreen not-for-profit seed fund dedicated to supporting new venture development in Rhode Island. They invest in early-stage technology ventures founded by entrepreneurs who have the vision, courage, and tenacity to build companies that aim to achieve transformational impact in the industries or markets they serve.
AS220's restaurant is undergoing renovations, so the restaurant will not be open. The bar will be open, though. Please feel free to eat before you arrive, or bring your own food and eat there. There are lots of takeout/delivery options downtown.
